“Be on your guard, so that your minds are not dulled from carousing, drunkenness, and worries of life, or that day will come on you unexpectedly”

‭‭Words of Jesus. Luke‬ ‭21:34‬ ‭HCSB‬‬

Have you ever tried to pay attention in class or focus on work when you are overwhelmed with worry? It’s almost useless. While Paul tells us not to be drunk with wine, Jesus let’s us know worry is no better. God wants to take the hurting places in our hearts, those places filled with pain and anxiety which we try to blunt with alcohol, shopping, books and social media and fill them up with the Holy Spirit. Mathematician Blaise Pascal said “There is a God-shaped vacuum in the heart of each man which cannot be satisfied by any created thing but only by God the Creator, made know through Jesus Christ.”

Once you stop trying to take control from the Holy Spirit you will find your mind freed up to focus and think clearly, no longer weighed down with burdens you were never meant to bear. Are you ready to let go? What are you waiting for?🚦
